Subject: Re: pronunciation: jewelry
I've always pronounced it as "jewl-er-ee," and occasionally wondered
why it's pronounced that way, but I've never heard any other pronunciation.
How do the rest of you pronounce "jewelry"?

I say it the way that you do. A common pronunciation in Central Georgia
sounds like "jewry."
